Just last week UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor made some major steps towards a potential boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. McGregor agreed to contract terms with the UFC and signed his half of a fight agreement then promptly applied for a Nevada boxing license and began training camp, but Mayweather has been relatively silent on the matter — until now.
“They said Conor McGregor signed his end of the deal," Mayweather said at a meet and greet event on Monday (h/t MMA Fighting). "I look forward to signing my end of the deal. I haven’t signed my end of the deal yet so once I get home, I’ll communicate with my team, I’ll talk with Al Haymon, I’ll talk with Leonard, and we’ll see what we come up with. We’ll put all our great minds together and we’re gonna have another superfight.”
Over the weekend McGregor used his social media to taunt Mayweather into signing the deal.
"Sign your end Floyd of you are just a mouth," McGregor wrote.
UFC president Dana White has said that if this fight does not happen this year, it won't happen at all so the clock is ticking on this bout coming to fruition.
